Suck On That: Diggers Issued Halal-certified Army Rations

Half of all combat ration pack configurations were to be prepared in accordance with Islamic dietary requirements, even though there were only about 100 Muslims in the entire 50,000+ strong Defence Force. Four menus were to contain meat that had been certified as sacrificed to Allah. The other were two were to be vegetarian options that are naturally halal anyway.

Just so you know, under the new ration plan which was supposedly designed to combat ‘menu fatigue’, ordinary Diggers have less choice of ordinary meals than before. That’s how diversity works.
